Is there a book character you desperately wish you were like?
Have you ever read a book and thought, "Wow, this IS me, but more awesome!"? If so, which one?
Harry Porter... i always imagined that character that wow its me i'm doing the magic i'm into the scene harry porter is dream character
not yet, but there are still many books which I did not read..
Seeing that I am 'Grey'... No need for me to want to be that... SO?, I would want to be 'The Blue Fish' from Dr. Seuss...
I would have to say yes...Mary Poppins.
This is one of the best stories in my opinion. I love how life is so easy for Mary Poppins and how she is able to make others happy and jovial too.
sam from lord of the rings and pollyanna...those two come closest to who i am so i identify with them.
I reckon some days I am Dr Seuss' "cat in the hat", whilst some days I am more like "The Grinch".. We are different things and people on different days I suppose.
Interesting question - As far as I know there is no biographies written about me, nor have I written an auto-biography to date - thus I can honestly say there is no book characters I wish I was like.
Someone recently asked me what I would do different if I had my life to live over?
I replied "nothing would be changed - I made it to here, I have learned to be comfortable in my own skin PLUS I long ago learned happiness is a choice and I choose to be happy. My life has been an adventure... let the adventure continue!!"
I don't know as I actually wish I were like any but there are many I think are pretty awesome. I mean to be able to see and deduce things as Sherlock Holmes would be great but I wouldn't want to be all messed up as he is. I have wondered whether I might fancy a certain male character or two as my boyfriend or husband, but never really seriously. After all to make the characters more entertaining there needs to be some negative to them.
This is an awesome question, which really took me some time to think and flash back through some memories. Days back, I'd imagined myself as not few characters in stories, but I really can't say someone who I desperately wish to be!
I have not been one but many. I've been the boy Jim Hawkins aboard the pirate ship searching for the Treasure Island; I've been surrounded by pipe fumes and played the violin in 221B Baker street; I've journeyed through strange lands trying to destroy the One ring that rules them all; I've battled global super villains as a suave spy who has a License to Kill; I've been a brooding private eye looking for the Maltese Falcon; I've been a strange Belgian with a penchant for precision solving mysteries in Post war England; I've been the boy who lived; the forensic examiner who finds clues from the mortal remains ; The Man with no name; The gunslinger; The mysterious stranger in the moors. I've bene heroes, villains, comedians, innocents and deviants. I've lived a thousand lives through books. Thanks for a brilliant question.
It would have to be Keith Doyle from Jody Lynn Nye's "Mythology 101". He never gives up, works hard, helps others, and is relentlessly cheerful.
BK-201 from DTB his combat skills and his bullet-proof trench coat and a white mask are totally bad ass
Since there have been Star Trek novels that have been created independent of either the television shows or movies, I think the logical person to be is Spok. If not Spok then Scotty. I wish there had been more time to develop the relationship between Scotty and Uhura. I think they would have made a lovely couple. On the Next Generation scene there's Captain Picard. I do so admire his love of books. In Discworld I fancy being either a member of the Assassin's Guild in good standing or Captain Carrot from the City Watch.
I adore Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables books. I wish I could be more like her!
I live vicariously through my character. I can't be a real serial killer but she does what I can't do lol
The Proverbs 31 woman in the book of Proverbs from the Bible.
Hermione Granger. I'm vaguely obsessed with her. I'm always trying to learn and know everything and please everyone. It would be a lot easier if I were like her.
Believe it or not, I would have to Isabella Swan of the Twilight Series. I totally understand what being an outsider to people is all about. It's like wishing you were born in a different time period or something. I am almost 46 and still feel that way today. But at the same time, I have learned that either you take me the way that I am, or leave me in peace. I have no more time for BS.

This isn't just between Marvel and DC. There have been a lot of other companies who made great (or at least decent) characters. My favorite is a three-way tie between J'onn J'onzz the Martian Manhunter, the Hulk, and Abraham Sapien from Hellboy.

How do you know what to title your novel or piece of work? I've been writing a book for years...and I think perhaps I'm too close to the work to name it... drawing a blank! Help!!
